Old skool RiotACT fave Amber Westin has returned to the pages of the Canberra Times.
Amber is banned from driving until 2017 after killing Heather Freeman in a haze of drug driving in Woden:

She pleaded guilty to charges of driving disqualified, driving with a mobile phone and giving false information.
Westin’s defence lawyer told the court her client had gone to the Hawker shops to collect methadone before driving to her mother’s home in Macquarie.
Magistrate Grant Lalor appears to have taken great pleasure in labelling Ms Westin’s driving “contumacious“.
